2012 FIGT Conference

Date: March 29-31, 2012

Location: The Westin Alexandria | Alexandria, VA

The 2012 Families in Global Transition Conference will be held for the second year in a row in Washington, DC. The conference provides a forum where members of internationally mobile families, e.g. corporate, military, diplomatic, missionary, gather with those who assist them: human resource personnel, relocation experts, educators and counselors. Together we will develop strategies for dealing with challenges of cross-cultural living.

The FIGT Conference promises to offer:

  • A forum for presenting new research.
  • An environment to facilitate the exchanging of new ideas.
  • An extraordinary opportunity for global networking across all sectors involved in the international and intercultural transitions.
